SEA EAGLE

WHITE-BELLED SEA EAGLE, HALIAEETUS LEUCOGASTER

I had been paddling and drifting down the creek for two hours when I came across this sea eagle diving again and again trying to pick something up. The sea eagle did eventually get it. I’m still not sure what is was, but it was a very special moment.
